SMWS Advent Day 21 - Peat Faerie Batch 03, 10 years old

SMWS Advent Day 21

Peat Faerie Batch 03, 10 years old, 50% A+

PFNose - Sweet-sour-medicinal, quite spirity and plastic-glue-y. Good, rich malty sweetness underneath, some crushed shells and seaside, some cracked black pepper crisps.

Body - Balanced and quite accomplished compared to how I remember batch 1, some refreshers and even a little clove.

Finish - Long and dustily balanced between crushed boiled sweets, sawdust and liquorice imps. The dry edge really makes it, makes you want to come back and have another sip.

I remember batch one being a distinct disappointment in the delivery but this is much better. Maybe my dram of batch 1 suffered from being just open whereas this advent dram has been through all sorts of punishment to get to me.

Suffice to say, I like this a lot more than I was expecting to.

I think the 10 year old is sold out but the 7 year old Peat Faerie Jnr. (batch 4) is available.
